So on Capcom Unity, they just announced that the planned Mega Man Legends 3 Project was canned. Bummer.

This makes me wonder about what Capcom has coming out...that is remotely interesting.

I was just about to make a thread. Can't say that I'm surprised after the Mega Man Universe treatment a while ago. Boo!

What? Wasn't there a demo out though?

#4 Posted by Giantstalker (1656 posts) -

Well, I played the first game a while ago on the N64... not the best version, but still, kind of unfortunate that they can't get anything good going with Megaman lately.

If they cancelled it though, it was probably for good reasons.

Rumors abound say that the demo didn't get enough downloads, which was one of the reasons why the business men in their business suits decided to shut down the project.

The Prototype Version was never released on the North American eShop. Don't know about the Japanese eShop.

The Capcom Unity post specifically stated that Inafune's departure had nothing to do with the cancellation.

The news makes me sad, but also not surprised.  There is no way the game would sell great here in the US at least.  Sadly, it was the right move.

God Damnit.

What a disappointment. Megaman needs a serious boost these days, and this cancellation isn't helping his case.

Of course they're going to say that. PR. I don't believe this one bit.

Joystiq said it was mostly Inafune's project and no one wanted/knew how to take it over.

I kind of laughed when I read about this because this was the only game I was interested in for the eshop, oh well.

People have been known to write things that aren't true. Especially business people.

I'm sure Capcom had perfectly good business reasons for this and I can't blame them for making business decisions, but I am legitimately sad about this.

Mega Man Legends was a weirdly important game to me growing up and I was super excited that it was coming back. I wish it could have had a chance.

MOTHERFUCKER........  
Sorry....just...... *sigh*

#23 Posted by AuthenticM (3733 posts) -

Oh well. Maybe they'll finally get around to making Mega Man X9. :)

What, really? I never played the other Legends games, but they seem to have a strong following...

After this and the cancellation of Mega Man Universe, I think it'll be a long while before X9 sees the light of day.

I'd prefer a Mega Man 11, but yeah, this does kind of put the future of the franchise into question. With this and Universe cancelled and Inafune gone... I'm nervous. Mega Man is one of my all time favorite video game franchises, I don't want it to end like this.

MEGA MAN IS FUCKING DEAD WHY DID YOU DO THIS CAPCOM.

Shit is looking bad for Nintendo.

Bad

#33 Posted by PKHilson (205 posts) -

I understand the disappointment over this, but my personal opinion of the series has always been clunky controls and irritating voice acting. I still enjoyed them enough to play through to the end though.

#34 Posted by FateOfNever (1839 posts) -

Boooo.
 
Then again, I never liked the idea it was set for the 3DS, so...  
 
That sounds like a lot of money Capcom has just flushed down the toilet by canceling both Universe and now Legends 3.  Though, guess they figured those projects would cost them more to try and finish and sell than just scrapping it all.

What does this have to do with Nintendo? One less decent looking 3rd party game on the 3ds... I think they'll survive.
#36 Posted by Mesoian (1574 posts) -

I am now 90% less interested in buying a 3DS

Nintendo really should have pushed them to have this game come out.

#37 Posted by Gramiero (142 posts) -

No Ace Attorney or Mega Man. Do you not want my money, Capcom?

NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Why Capcom, why, why..........

@SuperfluousMoniker: Having a one-off sequel to Mega Man in the same NES style was cute... but a second time was stretching it. A third one? Hell. No.

But you know it's the only way Capcom will put out a new Mega Man game... minimal asset generation, maximum profit...

#40 Posted by WJist (313 posts) -

  

I was already bummed out by Capcom backing out of Mega Man Universe, now I'm super sad. 
 
It continues to baffle me why Tron Bonne persists in the Capcom pantheon if there won't be any more Legends games.

Well what did they expect? It was the fucking e-shop.

As long as the level design is good, I will continue playing Mega Man games until the end of time. Minimal asset generation maybe, but there's still a lot of effort going into creating new enemies, environments, bosses, etc and making it new, interesting and fun. Just because it's 8 bit style doesn't mean it comes out of nowhere.

Only the prototype version demo was for the eShop. The full final game would have been a retail release.

Capcom continues to be awful, and I continue to not support Capcom.
 
"Hope ya like re-releases of games you already bought, because that's all we ever make anymore!!!"

#48 Posted by mrangryface (775 posts) -

Im kinda getting irked with fighting games and DLC- honestly if youre able to release characters that are solid contributions to the roster within the first year months of release F U- shoulda been in the game to begin with. Im lookin @ U Mortal Kombat.

Still- waiting for SSF4 AE PC was sooooo worth it.

#49 Posted by Klaimore (948 posts) -

Why do these Japanese companies hate their fans so fucking much! First Project Rainfall now this?! This is extremely frustrating.

#50 Posted by mrangryface (775 posts) -

I think its because they think that because we tend to buy a bunch of crap in mass quantities- and theyve suddenly become so bad at making games that sell in mass quantities in America, they need to avoid taking risks. Its a shame that one of the few publishers that appreciates its niche market (NiS) also feels the needs to ship panties with their games as pre-order bonuses. We cant win!
